  • Several questions in Michigan part 3 Michigan

    Hello,

    I work for a security company (physical and event security) and I have several questions but will post them individually to assist in not confusing the issues.

    My third question is this.

    The company has recently announced that all employees will no longer receive pay checks. They are telling us that we will be receiving direct deposit or some other means of payment. First, can a company force us to get direct deposit? If they do, there is talk about this, they tell us that a summary of hours, wages, withdrawals, etc. will not be issued, is this allowed under any law?

    TIA

    Michigan prohibits forced direct deposit. But I could not find any prohibitions against forced pay cards, which is the alternative.

    Regardless of the pay method, however, here is the requirement for pay statements.

    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        Michigan-
        (2) Except as provided in section 283a of the management and budget act, 1984 PA 431, MCL 18.1283a, an employer or agent of an employer shall not deposit an employee's wages in a bank, credit union, or savings and loan association without the full, free, and written consent of the employee, obtained without intimidation, coercion, or fear of discharge or reprisal for refusal to permit the deposit.

        However, an employer paying wages by payroll debit card to 1 or more of its employees as of January 1, 2005 may pay wages to any of its employees by payroll debit card without obtaining the consent described in this subsection.
